What Makes Balanced Spine Center So Different?

Balanced Spine Center offers a completely unique healthcare service and experience that you’ve likely never encountered. The nervous system controls every function of our health, bodies and lives yet it is the most neglected and overlooked system in healthcare.


Dr. Marilyn Peterson

Dr. Marilyn Peterson is an expert at delivering a safe, gentle, and effective adjustment to adults, children, and those with Neuro developmental Disorders. Dr. Peterson has dedicated her practice to The Art of the Specific (TATS) Upper Cervical Specific Technique. Her small-town approach and attitude assures each of her patients receive the best possible care. She has been practicing the Art, Science, and Philosophy of Chiropractic in her Snellville office since 2003.

” why I believe in Upper Cervical Chiropractic” 

The Atlas, or the first cervical vertebra is formed like a ring and connects the skull to the cervical spine. The Atlas sits upon the second cervical vertebra, better known as the Axis. These are the only two vertebrae between which there is NO DISC. The absence of the intervertebral disc allows for a greater range of motion. Because of this increased range of motion, these segments are much more likely to misalign, causing nervous system interference at the level of the brain stem.

At Balanced Spine Center, we believe the focus should be on living a life free of nerve interference and not about getting adjustments. In fact, our goal is to deliver as few adjustments as possible.

Dr. Marilyn Peterson is one of less than 2,000 practitioners worldwide that uses a specialized technique called Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic care, which focuses on removing nerve irritation to restore communication between the brain and the body. Restoring function at the level of the brainstem and upper cervical spine (the control center of the body) is essential so that the body may heal itself and have optimal vitality. With the nervous system functioning at 100%, the body has the potential to heal itself from even the most complex dis-ease.


Some Of Patients’ Testimonials

  • I can honestly say that even after the very first Upper Cervical adjustment, I felt better and it gets better each time. I am recovering from total knee replacement that has caused further damage to a previous low back injury and my ability to get up and walk… without a doubt Chiropractic care has changed my life…

    Gail V., Snellville, GA

  • My daughter had her 1st  Upper Cervical Adjustment 2 weeks ago and the results have been incredible! To say that we are pleased with Upper Cervical Care would be an understatement. We are excited to see the continuing improvements in our daughter and we are more hopeful than ever about her future.

    Claribel P., Lawrenceville, GA

  • Dr. Peterson adjusted Harrison at 5 days old. The biggest improvement I saw was his latch when breastfeeding was 100% fixed immediately, which took the stress away from pumping every time he was hungry. He was less fussy when I was changing him and he spit up less when I fed him. He used to cry sometimes when he was trying to go to the bathroom like he was constipated, that’s something that has improved as well.
